How to Turn Off Mail Notification on the Welcome Screen

By default, XP tries to be helpful and provide you with information, such as
the number of unread e-mail messages you have, on the Welcome screen for
each account name (if you use Outlook or Outlook Express for your e-mail).
What if you'd rather not have this info displayed? You can turn this
notification off by editing the Registry. Here's how:

1.. Open your favorite Registry Editor.
2.. Navigate to the following key:
HKEY CURRENT USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\UnreadMail
3.. In the right pane, find the entry called MessageExpiryDays and double
click it. If you don't see this entry, click Edit | New | DWORD Value and
create a new entry with this name.
4.. Set the value to 0 (the default is 3).
Note that this only works if you have only one account set up in Outlook/OE.

You can also download the last version of Tweak UI and
go to Logon/Unread Mail/Uncheck the Show... and good luck. I never tried
it!

Caroline go to my website www.freelanceit.glowinternet.net Click on the
WinXP Faq button and take a look at question 67. You have basically two
options - edit the registry to remove them or use a freeware application
called tweakui. All the details are on the website.
